Course content

The Theoretical Physics Group is internationally recognised for its contribution to our understanding of the unification of fundamental forces, the early universe, quantum gravity, supersymmetry, string theory, and quantum field theory.

This renowned MSc course is designed to prepare students for PhD study in fundamental theoretical physics by bridging the gap between an undergraduate course in physics or mathematics and the research frontier.

The origins of the programme date back to the founding of the Theoretical Physics Group by Abdus Salam, one of Imperial’s Nobel Laureates.
